The art of macramé, a handcrafted technique of creating decorative knots, has crossed borders and time to become a popular form of contemporary decorating.
Today, macramé tapestries offer a creative and relaxing way to embellish any space. In the following sections, we’ll explore how you can immerse yourself in this ancient art and fill your home with unique and beautiful pieces.
Macramé is a handcrafted art that originated in Persia and has evolved over the generations to reach all continents in all its variations and forms. Macramé tapestries are very popular today.
With the increasing amount of time we spend at home, taking advantage of this time by doing crafts such as creating a macramé tapestry can be a rewarding way to occupy it. A macramé tapestry can serve as a curtain decoration, on the headboard of our bed or on a doorway. They are also used in hammocks, pot holders and any other artistic vision you may have.
For the creation of these pieces, we use 3mm, 4mm or 5mm cotton thread or rope, according to taste. By creating knots (there are approximately 50 different types of knots), you can start making your work of art.
In our store in Barcelona, we sell cotton bobbins of different sizes and quantities to meet your needs. In addition, we can recommend you the approximate amount of macramé cord you will need to make your work.
These cotton bobbins weigh a little less than 1kg, and with one of them you get about 60 meters. The colors available are white and ecru, the latter being the most commonly used. Cotton is a natural material that keeps better in closed spaces.
Therefore, macramé is a beautiful way to express your creativity and enhance your environment. From creating tapestries to hammocks and pot holders, the possibilities are endless. So get excited to explore this art and enjoy the process and results.
